While visiting New Delhi my tour guide for the day took me by the Crafts Museum to view all the amazing textile work displayed there, from rugs to wall hangings, to clothing etc. Also beautiful outdoor café and museum shop well worth a visit here.

They have lots of areas outside with different sculptures/woodwork/etc from different areas of India, and if you have been to a few parts of the country then you will appreciate the differences. Also several galleries inside with different themes including religious items, reconstructed houses and lots of textiles. The guides are very pleasant and like to show you the exhibits.... More

This place is nice to spend 3-4 hours with friends or family . You would love to many things which you have never seen anywhere. There are some nice restaurants with good ambience over there.
